Nerdist Presents: The Walking Dead Parody By The Hillywood Show

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Nobody does pop culture parodies videos quite like YouTube sensations, and Nerdist Alliance members, The Hillywood Show®, made up of comedy sister duo Hilly and Hannah Hindi. They’ve tackled everything from Twilight to The Vampire Diaries to Doctor Who doing the Time Warp. But there is one television behemoth, a monstrously popular genre program, that as yet the Hindi sisters hadn’t yet devoured… AMC’s staggering hit The Walking Dead… UNTIL NOW THAT IS.

  We gave you the tiniest of previews of this parody a few weeks ago, and now it’s finally here. Watch as Hilly gets grimy – Rick Grimes to be exact – and shoots the guts out of zombies to the tune of Queen’s biggest hit, “Another One Bites the Dust.” Quite a fitting soundtrack to so much undead slaughter. The production wanted to ensure authenticity, so The Hillywood Show® went on location for it.”

Don’t Send Your Kid To The Ivy League

 

 

Hanna Sender/International Business Times

 

 

 

” When I speak of elite education, I mean prestigious institutions like Harvard or Stanford or Williams as well as the larger universe of second-tier selective schools, but I also mean everything that leads up to and away from themthe private and affluent public high schools; the ever-growing industry of tutors and consultants and test-prep courses; the admissions process itself, squatting like a dragon at the entrance to adulthood; the brand-name graduate schools and employment opportunities that come after the B.A.; and the parents and communities, largely upper-middle class, who push their children into the maw of this machine. In short, our entire system of elite education.

  I should say that this subject is very personal for me. Like so many kids today, I went off to college like a sleepwalker. You chose the most prestigious place that let you in; up ahead were vaguely understood objectives: status, wealth“success.” What it meant to actually get an education and why you might want oneall this was off the table. It was only after 24 years in the Ivy Leaguecollege and a Ph.D. at Columbia, ten years on the faculty at Yalethat I started to think about what this system does to kids and how they can escape from it, what it does to our society and how we can dismantle it. “

” But if such a student seeks a job at The New Republic, that move won’t be a wise one. We’ve sized up TNR’s lengthy editorial masthead (read: not the business or sales teams) and noticed that 46 out of 91 staffers hold undergraduate or graduate degrees (or both) from an Ivy League institution. Readers who attended a college with a robust core curriculum that forces you to take a math class—Columbia University, for instance—will note that that amounts to more than half of the masthead. Here’s the breakdown.”

Walking Dead Recruits One-Limbed Teen For Terrifying Zombie Prank

 

 

 

 

 

 

” One-armed, no-legged teenager Nick Santonastasso loves the Walking Dead. He’s also made a name for himself on the internet pulling zombie pranks on unsuspecting victims. So it made sense for Walking Dead producers to fly him to Tokyo—where the cast and crew was gathered for a press junket—so he could pull an excellent prank on Norman Reedus, aka Daryl Dixon on the show.”

The Microbiology Of Zombies, Part I

 

 

 

” For Walking Dead fans and readers of this blog, you probably know why I was all excited about some of the plot elements that have been included thus far this season: possible zoonotic disease, and in particular, a potential influenza outbreak that may have originated in pigs. I muse about this and other infections in an article for Slate.com, and will have additional thoughts about zombies and infectious disease more generally in the coming days.”

” I’d Tell You About This Zombie Political Ad, But You Will Have To Watch It First ”

HT/IJR

Video of the Day

Once again Mr. Fleming delivers a laugh to keep the tears from flowing .

” Let’s face it: We’re never going to deal with the serious problems in our county. The economy is
still faltering, our debt seems insurmountable,gas prices are out of control and terrorists are
still trying to blow us up with their underwear.
But what issue is dominating the presidential race right now? Gay marriage. ”

There certainly is an attention deficit in this country . But also a courage deficit ….

” We can’t even leave it to the politicians to solve our problems, because they’re not any better.
When President Obama took office, he saw the joblessness and faltering economy and decided
he didn’t feel like dealing with that — instead, he started playing with his fun new health-care plan. ”

As Frank says , we won’t deal with the issues until they bite us on the ..s .

” Maybe we’ll just have to put Ritalin in the water to help us all focus. Because otherwise the only time our economy and the national debt will be interesting enough to hold our attention is when the country has collapsed. That will really grab everyone’s interest — you’ve seen how popular all those zombie-apocalypse shows and movies are. ”
